The World Through A New Lens.

I’ve been wanting to get a camera “upgrade” for the longest time. I’ve used two Canon cameras consecutively, but since I got the Samsung Galaxy S3 over a year ago, my 16 megapixel Canon digital camera seemed to fail in comparison to the S3’s 8 megapixel camera.

After much consideration and bouncing between Samsung’s WB800 and the Samsung Galaxy Camera for weeks, I finally picked my new photo companion, the Samsung Galaxy Camera! If you’re considering getting one too, perhaps this post will give you an idea of what you’re getting. I am very glad I picked the Galaxy camera, I’m looking for every opportunity to whip it out and snap away!

I was excited about the “Beauty Face” mode but now I’m not too sure, mainly because it airbrushes your face a wee bit too much. If you’re looking for a more natural way to even out your facial flaws, you might want to shoot on normal mode and do edits later. PhotoWonder lets you choose different levels of smoothing out flaws, and it packs quite a few awesome filters too. I was about to complain about it reducing my file sizes and image quality so drastically BUT! I just realised that there are actually file-saving options, between saving as .png or .jpg and from small to x-large files. I’m not sure if it would work for edits or only photos taken with PhotoWonder’s filter camera so I definitely need to find time to figure it out.

The day after I got the camera I went outside to take some photos of some of the pretty flowers Mummy has. If I remember correctly, I used the Smart Macro and Landscape modes for these shots, they need no editing whatsoever, I’ve only cropped and downsized them for uploading purposes. Enjoy! :)

A close up of a bunch of Hydrangeas, aren’t they just lovely?

Bougainvilleas got caught in between the Hydrangeas.

Spotted this little butterfly outside the study window yesterday so I grabbed the camera and took a couple of shots. These were all taken with at least 4-5x zoom and they still came out great! I cropped the photo above to focus more on the butterfly, the photo below gives you a good gauge of just how much I cropped off.

There were two! I tried to capture a slow motion video but they didn’t stay around long enough, maybe next time! xx
